Java Updates??

Daniel-2
Over the last couple of months, I've received several notifications
about a Java (not JavaScript!!) update being available for my Win7 Pro
but, when I click on the notification, I quickly get told that the
Update could not be installed.

If I go to Start->Control Panel->Java (32bit) Control Panel and select
"About" on the General tab, it shows "Version 8 Update 161 (build
1.8.0_161-b12)

If I then select the "Update" tab and click the "Update Now" button, I
told there is a Java Update Available (Java 8 Update 181) but, when I
then click the "Update >" button, I rapidly get a "Error - Java Update"
window which tells me "Failed to download required installation files".

Again .... and again ... and again!!

Is it just me?? Is there a problem with my Win7 system??

Anyone got a valid suggestion??

It's really old, but I find that javara is still functional and useful
on my Win10 system.  See: https://singularlabs.com/software/javara/

Some probably do need it.

"The programming language is the most common way to build Android apps."

Fifth most popular on this survey.

<https://www.businessinsider.com/14-most-popular-programming-languages-stack-overflow-developer-survey-2018-4>

Third if we are only counting actual programming languages.

<https://spectrum.ieee.org/at-work/innovation/the-2018-top-programming-languages>

I would need it if I wanted to use the LibreOffice database application.

Unfortunately, in my case (win10 x64 bit) JavaRa is not operational any
longer.
– Cleaning logs and temporary files created by JRE
– Performing a clean uninstall of JRE
are the features I especially miss.
Does anybody know if Iobit Uninstaller is comparably effective?

I just took the AARP defensive driving course on line and Java was
required.  No big deal.  Firefox asked if I should use it and I said yes
and all worked fine.

I recall update problem and think I had to delete all traces and reload
it.  Also did something to avoid persistent request for update.

I have a JavaUninstallTool.exe saved in my Downloads folder on Windows
10. Version 1.1.0.0.

I've been running javara in win10 64 bit every since I upgraded to win
10 from win 7.  Initially, I should have mentioned that it needs to run
in win 10 using the compatibility mode for win 7.

Doesn't it matter to you that JavaRa is no longer supported? "JavaRa is
no longer receiving updates. Please see the ‘Retiring JavaRa‘ post for
more information." (<https://singularlabs.com/software/javara/>)

Thanks for pointing me to this page and the Java Uninstall tool. When it
reads "You can uninstall older versions of Java manually in the same way
as you would uninstall any other software from your Windows computer",
it most probably answers my initial question.

When I open javara and "update definitions", the program responds with
"javara updated".  Then, when I check installed versions, it correctly
displays both my currently installed version and all earlier versions
that were not auto-uninstalled (as they should have been).  I believe
singular labs's failure to support the program refers just to that - the
program.  So they won't be developing a win10 version.  OK.  Doesn't
necessarily refer to whether the unsupported version continues to
function properly.  As of now, at least on my win10 64 bit PC, using a
compatibility mode, it does.

Clearly, your search for an uninstaller shows that more recent versions
fail to fully uninstall their predecessor versions so a convenient tool
to check currently installed versions and uninstall obsolete versions is
useful.  Yes there are other ways to uninstall older, installed
versions.  The free version of revo uninstaller, iobit uninstaller, and
of course, the Programs and Features GUI within windows itself.

Thanks, EnDeeGee, I think I've downloaded Java Version from that site
previously, but now that site is falling under a problem that I've
mentioned elsewhere (possible in the SeaMonkey group) where, when I
click on a download link, I can see activity on my Wireless Broadband
connection thingee but the "Downloaded File" does not get written
anywhere!! ;-(

Thanks for your suggestion. ;-)

Hi Daniel,

I've seen that on just about every Win7 machine. I don't even bother
waiting for it to fail any more, and download the file manually when I
see an update is available.

Hope all is well,

Terry

Not many do. Uninstall it and if you get prompted by a program,
reinstall it. Quite often that never occurs.
